The Pool will be open on Labor Day, September 4th, and will close on September 5th.
Starting on Monday, August 14th, the Pool will be changing opening hours to 3 PM to 9 PM.
As the timestamp indicates, these three young men entered the pool enclosure around 3 AM this morning, and decided to move the picnic table seen next to them to the front near the gate. They also used the ladies bathroom and left a present.
As soon as we can identify these 3 individuals, they will be banned from the pool indefinitely.
If any of you know who these guys are, please let us know using a comment to this post.
We have been operating on bad information which led us to believe we had to have the Inspector approve us to open, but after calling and speaking with the Manager of Environmental Services, I was informed we did not have to wait for the Inspector to open the pool. They will simply show up unannounced, as they have always done.
Somehow, whoever we spoke with previously at this same department gave us bogus information, which has now been cleared up.
We are planning on opening the Pool for the Memorial Day weekend, but as of this writing, the City inspector has not yet come by to approve the opening. They tend to not make appointments and just show up.
We are ready and have been for some time. As soon as we have the approval to open, we will post the operating schedule.
The Pool will reopen on Friday, August 12th, at 11 AM. The current Pool schedule will resume on that day
Repairs on the pool will begin early next week and we should be back open within few weeks.
This is best estimate based on what they need to do, starting with chipping out 2 or 3 layers of plaster over the entire area of the pool to get to the base layer, and then apply a new layer of plaster over that. It will take days for the new layer to properly cure before we can open the pool for swimmers.
We will keep you updated as things progress.
This past weekend, we determined there were a lot of separations in the pool plaster, the last of which was done in 2014. I spoke with the pool company that re-plastered it last time and was told there are probably 2 or more layers beneath the last one. His suggestion is that we have all of the layers of plaster removed, down to the base material, and then re-plaster the pool.
At this time, we are awaiting the quote for this work and in the meanwhile, the pool will be closed until we can get these repairs done. We will let everyone know when this work is scheduled and the approximate completion date.
